Find Sandals Ochi Beach All Inclusive Resort – Couples Only…All-inclusive. Until we stayed at Sandals Resorts, we heard “all-inclusive” and winced.
Back from nearly 2 weeks island hopping around The Bahamas, we can state that we totally enjoyed our stays at both Sandals Resorts in The Bahamas. There were a couple of things that could be enhanced, but overall the experience wasn’t at all what we expected– in an excellent way. We ‘d absolutely think about going extensive once again and our Sandals Resorts review reveals you why you should too:
With Sandals Resorts, it’s clear up-front that there are no restrictions on dining, which activities are included which you have your choice of exceptional alcohol. There are extra fees, which is very clear on the Sandals website, for a couple of things such as medspa services, off-resort expeditions and leasing a cabana. And that’s it.
Sandals even has a rigorous no tipping policy, so it’s totally unnecessary to have cash on hand.

After our very first visit to Sandals Emerald Bay’s Cafe de Paris where we ordered a lattes and provided our room secret to the barista just to be told it wasn’t essential, I locked my handbag in the safe. We literally required our key cards exclusively to gain access to our room.
At both Sandals Resorts, we stayed in Club Sandals level rooms that were embellished likewise in British Colonial style. I like the restroom at Sandals Emerald Bay more because it had a different tub and walk-in shower, and double sinks in the vanity. I did discover the restroom lighting a bit dim at Sandals Emerald Bay, but the makeup mirror was lit so that assisted.
The Club Sandals level implies extra guest features such being satisfied on arrival by a Sandals concierge, revitalizing towels on arrival to the resort, personal check-in that included a signature mixed drink or glass of Champagne in the Club Sandals lounge, a tour of the home (which is actually really helpful if you’ve not been to that Sandals before) and a dedicated concierge to aid with dinner bookings and off-resort activities.
The Club Sandals lounge also offers a range of board games and books you can borrow and Kindles that can be utilized in the lounge. Free wifi is readily available throughout the entire home.
Service at Sandals resorts is generally exceptional by Caribbean standards, and that holds true at this Barbados property. You can expect a can-do mindset and ear-to-ear smiles from all the staff you stumble upon. If you stay in one of the top-end suites, you will have access to round-the-clock service from uniformed butlers trained by the Guild of Professional English Butlers; visitors are given a smart phone pre-set with their number to summon them at any time. Mid-priced Club Level rooms include access to a concierge lounge.
In regards to facilities, there are 3 swimming pools– a vibrant one by the beach with a swim-up bar, the stylish one with cabanas, and a 200m-long lagoon pool that snakes under bridges and jets of water. Other centers include non-motorised watersports, a gym and an attractive medspa. Guests at Sandals Barbados likewise have complete access to the centers at the connected Sandals Royal Barbados home, including another health spa complex, more pool (one on a roof) and an indoor bowling alley.
Staff organize daytime activities (volley ball on the beach, water polo etc). The night entertainment is excellent, and may include bands on a piazza at the entryway to the resort, spirited singalongs in the piano bar, and a sax player roaming the premises playing sensuous tunes.
